2019 Big Bunch Theory 'Go Together' Blanc

Ploussard, Melon de Bourgogne, Grenache Blanc, Pinot Gris
Multi-Regional, France

Winemaker Patrice Béguet, originally from the Jura, left home for a jaunt as an IT consultant in Paris. As is the case, city life never quite stuck, and the call back to home led him and his wife Caroline Hughes back to the Jura. They purchased heritage vineyards on great terroir, and set up a small winery under their house in Mesnay. They own 4.5 hectares of vineyard in the AOC Arbois appellation at over 300metres above sea level, including one of the most coveted slopes of Arbois. Coveted in the Jura is a big deal in the natural wine game! The pair make unbelievably exciting wines, each one full of twists and turns. This wine is made from fruit that they purchased from friends, combined with a little bit of their own. Pinot Gris from Alsace, Grenache Blanc from Provence, Melon de Bourgogne from Muscadet and Ploussard from home, this is truly a unique little wine. Lychee, white peach, nashi pear, meadow flowers and lemongrass. Springtime in a glass.
